Cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever as more people discover the benefits of rejuvenating their smile. A smile makeover is great for boosting confidence; many people also find a beautiful smile integral to pursuing new social and professional opportunities.
Dr. Ricardo Hernandez, a trusted cosmetic dentist in Pacific Beach, reveals the most sought-after cosmetic procedures here. The procedures can be performed individually or combined for a more dramatic transformation.
Porcelain veneers are an extremely versatile part of any cosmetic dentist’s repertoire. These small pieces of porcelain fit over the surface of the tooth to conceal small imperfections or change its color, shape, length, alignment or spacing.
A professional teeth whitening treatment can noticeably brighten dull or discolored teeth in as little as an hour. Teeth whitening is a comfortable and relatively inexpensive way to lift stains and discoloration by up to nine shades. Take-home trays are helpful for maintaining the effects of in-office treatment.
Bonding involves applying a resin material to the teeth to mask small chips, spots, discoloration or small gaps. The resin is color-matched to the shade, translucency and texture of the tooth so the treated tooth looks naturally beautiful.
White or tooth-colored fillings are the most cosmetically appealing way to restore decayed teeth. The filling material is color-matched to the tooth so it blends in seamlessly. It is becoming increasingly popular to have old metal fillings replaced with white fillings.
Invisalign is a tooth-straightening system that uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually move teeth into a better position. This leaves the teeth looking beautifully straight, even and aligned. Straighter teeth are not only attractive but also easier to keep clean and less likely to harbor bacteria.
Gum recontouring reduces and/or reshapes the gum tissue to reveal more tooth structure. This improves the balance between gums and teeth. A laser can be used to accomplish this for a more comfortable experience.
